Karl Stefanovic Has Been Dumped From The Today Show
Following Peter Stefanovic's exit from Nine, it has been confirmed that Karl Stefanovic has been axed from 'The Today Show'.
After mounting pressure and failure to rehabilitate his image, the network confirmed that after co-hosting the breakfast show for more than a decade, Stefanovic would not be returning in the new year.
“Nine and Karl Stefanovic have agreed it is time for him to step off the Today Show,” the statement read.
“Karl remains on contract with the network and will continue to host (his other show) This Time Next Year”.
It's the latest in a number of troubles faced by Stefanovic, who is currently on his honeymoon with new wife Jasmine Yarbrough after tying the knot in Mexico earlier this month.
The news follows confirmation yesterday that the former co-host's brother, Peter Stefanovic, would be departing Channel 9 after more than 15 years, with whispers that wife Sylvia Jeffreys will also follow.
“Peter has decided to explore new opportunities and is looking forward to spending weekends with his wife,” a statement from Channel 9 read yesterday.
The Stefanovics have faced a barrage of negative publicity in recent months following the 'Ubergate' scandal, in which Peter had an explosive conversation on speaker phone with Karl about their colleagues at Nine.
Karl's ex-wife Cassandra Thornburn recently spoke out on Studio 10 about the unwanted media attention she and the former couple's three children have experienced following their split after 21 years.
